In a rematch of last year's championship, the St. Monica eighth grade American girls basketball team took the interleague title in a 45-44 nail biter, avenging its narrow loss to St. Raymond a year ago. After racing out to a 27-17 lead behind some 3-point sharpshooting and strong defense, the St. Monica girls found themselves behind 37-32 with five minutes to go after a 20-5 run by St. Raymond. After gradually chipping away at the lead, the Spartans scored the game-winning basket on a short floater with 10 seconds to go before making one last defensive stop to hang on for the victory.
